Soap chiefs tone down gay kiss No2.

Eastenders bosses have ordered the soap's second gay kiss in two weeks to be re-filmed.

The shock scene shows pregnant Tiffany bursting in on a clinch between her gay brother and her boyfriend.

Nervous BBC bosses ordered the last-minute changes following the storm over last week's kiss.

They decided the scene should be re-shot for the pre-watershed audience.

Insiders said the offending gay scene showed the pair in a bedroom together.

It is believed the new scene will be toned down.

The second kiss is the cliff-hanger at the end of next Monday's episode.

Then in the following episode furious Tiffany will move out of the Albert Square flat.

After last week's kiss the BBC received almost 150 calls of complaints from viewers.
